After your date responds, say something to acknowledge him/her, elaborate on the conversation, give your own opinion and share your own experience about given topic.
People are usually interested in what they have to say, so try contributing to the given topic as best as you can.
Think of what you yourself are interested in and what interests you in others.
You probably want to reveal something about the personality; great types of questions are those starting with "what would you do if...".
Speed dating is what all those old paradigms from the '80s and '90s evolved into and has now established itself as the live dating event standard. You may also be interested in our blog post: What one Guardian writer thought of her first foray into the world of Speed Dating.
Speed dating is simply safer and more effective, especially when compared to online dating as there is no substitute for real, human, face-to-face introductions. Many friendships and other connections are borne from our events; it's a great social event where everyone just happens to be single and open to making new relationships - whatever that might lead to.
All you are really trying to figure out on the speed date is whether the two of you have something in common and if you would be able to carry out a conversation that lasts longer than four minutes.
Of course you want to find out if you could be with the person for a long run, but it is best to keep the 'big question' about the ex's or children for the subsequent dates.
Common questions at speed dating will always be about hobbies and a career, but it is good to be original, make the other person laugh, make him/her intrigued.
